该工厂将由其全资子公司Topas Advanced Polymers运营，将使该公司目前的COC产量增加一倍以上。Polyplastics公司在德国奥伯豪森已经有了一家COC生产工厂，但该公司表示，新工厂将有助于满足全球对COC聚合物日益增长的需求。
如MRC之前所述，宝理公司于1月21日宣布，决定扩大其在马来西亚由宝理亚太公司（Polyplastics Asia Pacific Sdn）运营的工程塑料复合工厂。该公司是一家总部设在吉隆坡的本地全资子公司。

Polyplastics to build COC polymers plant in Leuna, Germany
Polyplastics (Tokyo, Japan) says it plans to build a 20,000-metric tons/year cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) production facility in Leuna, Germany, with the plant scheduled to be operational by mid-2023, reported Chemweek.
No investment figure has been given.
The plant will be operated by its fully owned subsidiary Topas Advanced Polymers and will more than double the company’s current COC output. Polyplastics already has an existing COC production plant in Oberhausen, Germany, but says the new facility will help meeting growing demand worldwide for COC polymers.
Since the plant at Oberhausen began operations in 2000, a range of applications for the company’s COC polymer resins have been developed, including for medical, healthcare, optics, packaging, and electronics applications, it says. Monomaterial structures based on polyethylene (PE), enhanced with COC, are easier to recycle than other multimaterial solutions, it adds.
As MRC wrote before, Polyplastics Co., Ltd. announced on January 21 its decision to expand its engineering plastics compound plant in Malaysia operated by Polyplastics Asia Pacific Sdn. Bhd. (PAP), a wholly owned local subsidiary headquartered in Kuala Lumpur.
